Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk got married this weekend, which she confirmed with an Insta pic of their simple wedding bands. The intimate ceremony at her Hamptons home was reportedly attended by Robert Downey Jr., Jerry Seinfeld, Rob Lowe, Steven Spielberg, and Cameron Diaz.

Cardi B turned herself into the NYPD today and was given a summons in connection with an assault at a strip club, during which she allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders because they may have slept with Offset. Her lawyers denied her involvement and she’ll appear in court at a later date.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Matthew Weiner addressed Mad Men writer Kater Gordon‘s accusation that he once told her she owed it to him to let him see her naked, saying “I really don’t remember saying that. I’m not hedging to say it’s not impossible that I said that, but I really don’t remember saying it.” (When the reporter called him back to clarify his statement a few days later, he said “I know this seems weird, but I can’t imagine that I used the word ‘hedging.'” She checked; he did.)

-The news that Timothee Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp might be dating is exactly what our hardened hearts need right now.

-I think my enjoyment of A Star Is Born is going to be dependent on how much I avoid Bradley Cooper‘s interviews about it. In W, he says he lost out on roles early in his career because he was told he wasn’t f–kable enough. As an Alias fan, I’m finding this hard to reconcile because I remember him being EXTREMELY f–kable on that show.

Matt Damon‘s Kavanaugh impression reportedly came together just hours before the SNL premiere.  Colin Jost ran the idea past Damon sometime after midnight on Friday, and the actor flew from California on Sat and arrived at SNL’s 30 Rock studio at 4 p.m. to begin rehearsals.

-Meanwhile, in a pro-Trump speech after SNL went off the air, Kanye West said he was “bullied” backstage for wearing MAGA hat. He then talked about the 13th amendment in a tweet that did NOT go over well.

West also says he’s trying to arrange a meeting between Colin Kaepernick and Trump.

-Netflix is planning to roll out interactive features on shows including Black Mirror that will enable viewers to choose their own endings. Man, this seems like a super bad idea.

-I’m very into this suggestion that Dev Patel be considered as the next Bond. Very, very into it.

Taylor Swift showed up to support boyfriend Joe Alwyn at Friday’s premiere of The Favourite, a movie critics are LOVING.

-This is a great profile on Jane the Virgin showrunner Jennie Synder and how she’s bucking the current “prestige TV” trends (dark, slow, gruesome, gritty, miserable, male, etc.)  “When Jane started I was really, actively thinking, ‘Can a protagonist be an interesting person if they’re also a really good person? Can their life be complicated if they’re not doing all these terrible things and forced into these extreme situations?'”

-People are going nuts for this essay about The English Patient.

-Yikes — this review of Jennifer Garner’s HBO show Camping is pretty scathing. It’ll be interesting to see if other critics agree.

-Here’s the trailer for season two of The Runaways, I show I really liked and then promptly forgot about.

-Watch Taron Egerton play Elton John in the Rocketman trailer.

Hailey Baldwin Covers Vogue Japan

-Wow, Vogue Japan totally lucked out when they put Hailey Baldwin on their latest cover, having no idea she’d be Justin Bieber‘s fiancee by the time it hit newsstands.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth took a wrecking ball to those split rumors with an IG story.

-Speaking of Hemsworths and social media, Chris Hemsworth secured his place as the second best Chris with this hilarious video for his wife’s birthday. I had serious concerns about her arm socket for a second or two there…

-Romance rumours surrounding Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller feel kind of inevitable at this point, no?

Jenny McCarthy mistook her Google Home for a ghost. She’s swell.

-It feels like it’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything from Rihanna music-wise, but she’s looking to fix that. She’s reportedly working on two albums: a reggae one, and a pop one.

-My buddy Jon went to Chicago to interview Radiohead and its crew about Scott Johnson’s death, returning to Toronto and how the Canadian judicial system failed them.

-Crazy Rich Asians’ early word of mouth is GREAT.

-How the hell does a teen-targeting Netflix show that features a girl in a fat suit who only achieves agency once she gets her jaw wired shut and loses weight get made in 2018? How is that even possible? This entire fat-shaming premise is disgusting.

This made me laugh and laugh.

-Director Gus Van Sant was originally tapped to direct Brokeback Mountain, and is spilling tea over which huge stars turned it down. “I felt like we needed a really strong cast, like a famous cast. That wasn’t working out. I asked the usual suspects: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ryan Phillippe. They all said no.”

-This investigation into the rumoured American Sailer Moon is weirdly fascinating.

Christine Baranski says her high kicks have become something of a trademark. “It’s my one good dance move.”

Amanda Seyfried did The Tonight Show’s Google Translate Songs: Mamma Mia edition, and things got really weird.

Russell Simmons once told the staff at his yoga studio that he might become “collateral damage” of the #MeToo movement.

Mark Duplass has walked back his dumbass tweet.

-This is a really fascinating read on celebrities and the opioid crisis. “The overall reaction to Prince and [Tom] Petty’s overdoses — and to the opioid-driven losses before them of such other popular performers as Philip Seymour Hoffman and Heath Ledger — has amounted to nothing much when it comes to awakening Americans to the scope of the national crisis.”

-A defamation lawsuit surrounding The Biggest Loser claims that former contestants are alleging the NBC show supplied them with drugs, including Adderall and the FDA-banned ephedra.

-I really liked this piece on why this year TV dramas have had so many disappointing second seasons (The Handmaid’s Tale, Luke Cage, Westworld, Legion, 13 Reasons Why, Jessica Jones), while comedies are finding their groove in the 2nd season (Atlanta, One Day at a Time, The Good Place, Glow). I think there’s something to be said for dramas getting fixated on plot twists (usually dark and grim ones at that), while comedies do better at focusing on characters you want to follow.

-Everyone and their dog is raving about the book My Year of Rest and Relaxation. I’m saving it for the long weekend!

-I’m not a comic book person, but is this really what the audience wants from Titans? A Dick Grayson who murders people and says “f**k Batman”? Because this looks cheap, terrible and certainly not worth signing up to a new subscription service for.

Jodie Whittaker wakes up in the Doctor Who trailer they just showed at Comic-Con.

Jennifer Lopez scams her way into a management job Working Girl-style in the Second Act trailer, which costars Leah Remini as her BFF and Milo Ventimiglia as her BF.

-Of course Chris Carter plans to do more X Files without Gillian Anderson. Of course he does. JFC.

-Love is dead. Jenny Slate and Chris Evans have broken up again, according to his new NYT profile.

Matt Damon joked about Ben Affleck‘s ridiculous (and totally real) back tat: “I support him in all of his artistic expression.”

Jennifer Garner channeled her inner band geek to wish Reese Witherspoon a happy birthday, and it was pretty impressive.

-I love that Hollywood is casting Tessa Thompson in everything these days. She just signed on to join Chris Hemsworth in the Men in Black sequel, which is pretty much the only thing that would convince me to watch a Men in Black sequel.

-Oh dear lawd. Cate Blanchett said that social media is “not the judge and jury” when it comes to Woody Allen.  We just want to enjoy Ocean’s 8 in peace, Cate.

-Well, at least Cate is urging for help in preparing Rohingya refugees for oncoming monsoon rains.

-The Weinstein Co. has lifted their NDAs, which means we might be hearing a lot more stories soon.

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys were totally flirty and adorable on Colbert. I heart them.

-Yikes, this is not a good look for SNL’s Michael Che.

Taylor Kitsch‘s Instagram caption game is second to none.

-This fan theory that Lea Michelle is illiterate is totally ridiculous, yet I’ve seen it all over Twitter today.

-How awesome is it that Lena Waithe just landed a Vanity Fair cover?!

-Bill Hader’s new HBO show Barry, which debuts Sunday, is getting pretty good reviews.

-I really liked this article from a movie critic who slammed I Kill Giants on Twitter as soon as he saw it, and the first response was from the director himself. A good lesson about well-argued criticism vs a “hit-and-run pan on social media.” (Personally, I adored that film at TIFF and can’t wait until it’s released.)

-This is an interesting look at how the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s cinematographers hide the present when making a period piece.

-Despite rumours of reshoots, Deadpool 2 screenings reportedly got near-perfect ratings, scoring even higher than the original. Here’s the new trailer:
